How many minutes in 1 day?
There are 24*60 minutes in a day (ignoring the imperfections of the natural world, the Earth and Sun). So there are 24*60 valid 24 hour times (excluding seconds) on a digital clock.
Each of these can be rotated 4 ways, by 0,1,2 or 3 places. For example :
1 - 12:34
2 - 23:41
3 - 34:12
4 -4 1:23
In which case only 1 and 2 are valid 24 hour times.
How many of these 4*24*60 rotations are also valid minutes? (What is the fastest way to find this out?)

The easier part is the rotation by two digits: If the minutes are less than 24, this results in a time that is accurate, which happens in 242=576 cases.
The ones of the minutes must be between 0 and 2, which is the case in 18 out of 60 minutes, because if we rotate by one to the right, they become the tens of the hours. The ones of the hours become the tens of the minutes, so they must be between 0 and 5, which is the case in 16 out of 24 hours. Thus the number of valid rotations is 1816=288.
There are 288 additional valid rotations since the number of valid rotations must equal the number of valid rotations if we rotate by one to the right or left.  Obviously if we don't rotate at all, all 2460=1440 times are valid, so the total is
1440+576+288+288=2592 valid rotation sout of 42460=5760, slightly less than half.

A tow truck pulls a car that is stuck in the mud, with a force of 2500 N as in Fig P5.27 The tow cable is under tension and therefor pulls downward and to the left on the pin at its upper end. The light pin is held in equilibrium by forces exerted by the two bars A and B. Each bar is a strut that is, each is a bar whose weight is small compared to the forces it exerts, and which exerts forces only through hinge pins at its ends. Each strut exerts a force directed parallel to its length. Determine the force of tension or compression in each strut. Proceed as follows Make a guess as to which way (pushing or pulling ) each force acts on the top pin Draw a free-body diagram of the pin. Use the condition for equilibrium of the pin to translate the free-body diagram into equations. From the equations calculate the forces exerted by struts A and B. If you obtain a positive answer, you correctly guessed the direction of the force. A negative answer means the direction should be reversed, but the absolute value correction should be reversed, but the absolute value correctly gives the magnitude of the force. If a strut pulls of a pin, it is in tension. If it pushes, the strut is in compression. Identify whether each strut is in tension or in compression.

For tests using a ballistocardiograph, a patient lies on a horizontal platform that is supported on jets of air. Because of the air jets, the friction impeding the horizontal motion of the platform is negligible. Each time the heart beats, blood is pushed out of the heart in a direction that is nearly parallel to the platform. Since momentum must be conserved, the body and the platform recoil, and this recoil can be detected to provide information about the heart. For each beat, suppose that 0.050 kg of blood is pushed out of the heart with a velocity of +0.30 m/s and that the mass of the patient and the platform is 85 kg. Assuming that the patient does not slip with respect to the platform, and that the patient and the platform start from rest, determine the recoil velocity.

A rotational axis is directed perpendicular to the plane of asquare and is located as shown in the drawing. Two forces,1and 2,are applied to diagonally opposite corners, and act along the sidesof the square, first as shown in part a and then as shown inpart b of the drawing. In each case the net torque producedby the forces is zero. The square is one meter on a side, and themagnitude of 2 is5 times that of 1.Find the distances a and b that locate the axis. Notethat a and b are not drawn to scale.
a=___m
b=___m
